Well That’s MUCH Better

Today, The Princess happily boarded her bus at approximately the right time (her bus driver is notoriously late), and I dashed Pumpkin off to daycare and then…


Amazing, blissful silence.

And now, though I am completely and totally wiped out and ready to just crash (and it’s only 9-ish – what’s up with THAT?), having spent a day on no one’s schedule but my own was just what I needed.

I got some work done. I got a lot of laundry done. I played a little bit. I got a good workout. It was enough for me. I feel a bit more like myself and a bit less like some house-bound drone (Oh, I’m so dramatic).

Around 4 when The Princess came home, she walked in the door saying, “Hey mom! The ups guy was here!” (And yes, she said “ups” and not “U-P-S”). “Somebody got something from the ups guy!”

And that somebody was me!

A co-worker had sent a belated birthday gift: these funky collapsible measuring cups. Totally awesome. He’s on a silicone theme, he said. Last year was one of those silicone baking mats and a cool spatula. This year, the cups.

The card, in case you can’t read it also says: “Here’s to another year of excellent cookies!” Chances are, me and Pumpkin will pick up some sugar and chocolate chips tomorrow and make a batch of oatmeal chocolate chip cookies to send to the office. I may not be the sharpest stick in the eye – but I get the hint. And who wouldn’t want my cookies? I admit, they’re pretty freakin’ good.

So a blissed-out afternoon and a present too. Way better than yesterday.

  3. Tiffany – Message me your address and the next batch of cookies is for you.

  4. Oh wait – they aren’t GFCF cookies, though… So, maybe they would be something to keep at work.
